Marc Houle Remixes Krankbrother's "Zipp" into Italo-Disco Paradise

Step one: Chest hair perm. Step two: Hit play. Step three. Repeat.

Oh, Italo-disco, the often forgotten movement of glossy synthesizers, invasive chest hair, and a whole lotta Giorgio...While the sound has mostly slipped away into a time capsule of rare 12 inches and moldy cocaine, some producers are still keeping the flame alive. One of those is London DJ/production pair, and notable party throwers—krankbrother, who yes, are actual brothers.

Making their debut on TEED's newly minted Nice Age imprint, the brotherly pair of Danny and Kieran Clancy provide a hefty dose of 80s-insired synths with "Zipp", and have called in German techno mainstay Marc Houle to whip the the party up to new levels of Italo-ness with a thumping bassline that just never wants to end (Extra points if you got the cappuccino joke!),

Some might say dwelling on the past is a no-no, but it's tracks like this that turn the past into the future.
